Having a goal breathes life into everything you do

Picture

A goal is a dream with a deadline. I read in a very well-known, credible book that 98% of people do NOT have goals. That’s seems like a stretch but if it’s true, that is a real problem. That’s like playing basketball with no hoops, it will get boring really fast & you have no clarity & anything to shoot for. More people spend more time planning a vacation than their future…

Having a goal makes us come alive, it gives us something to focus our energies towards & provides a sense of purpose.

If you don’t have a goal, take the time to think about what is important to you & then WRITE IT DOWN. Your chances of accomplishing that goal increase 100-fold when you do!!! Then, get started, embrace & enjoy the journey & have FUN!

Action always beats intention

business training to learn to take action and overcome procrastination, fear and doube

Too many people spend too much time thinking.  The only way out of a situation is to take action.  We live in a culture where there is this attempt to avoid failure at all costs.

People often think that failure is the opposite of success.  Quite the contrary, failure is the COMPLEMENT to success.  Failing is part of life.  The problem is most people never learn the lesson from the failure.  The key is to figure out what you did wrong, learn from it and then APPLY what you learned.  That is how you make progress.

Taking action is everything.  People often have good intentions but thinking about something is never going to bring about positive change.  Action cannot be done without a desire to change.  We must commit to change.  The ability to change is one of the most powerful skills we can develop.  Often, people are afraid to change, choose to stay in the comfort of their comfort zones.  Courage is “not the absence of fear but doing it in spite of fear.”  Do live with courage in an effort to help us take action and succeed in life, we must remember three things:

1) Courage begins with an inward battle – we must overcome ourselves & live outside our comfort zones – our greatest battle lies within each of us.

2) Courage is taking a stand for what is right, it deals with the principle of the matter, not merely perception.

3) Courage is about overcoming things so we can inspire others to do the same “when one man stands with courage, the spines of others stiffen around him.”

Fear & doubt will exist with or without courage but when we exhibit courage we put fear to sleep & we build confidence in our capabilities.

What one area of your life can you exhibit courage and take action today? I promise when you do, you won’t be disappointed…

Get off the sidelines and get in the game of life!!!

We all have things we want to accomplish in life but, likely, there are always distractions or mental hangups that keep us from getting what we want.

The reality is we can be our own worst enemy.  We have to recognize that there are only two things we have control over in life:  our attitude and our actions.  We can CHOOSE to have a positive attitude and expect the best will happen.  We can CHOOSE to take action, even if we fail, that is totally okay.  The key is to fail forward, learning from our failures and applying what we learn the next time around.

If there is something in life you want, you have to go out there and take it. Nothing comes to those who sit on the sidelines. Get in the game of life and know that if you can conceive it and believe it, you can achieve it.  #seedsofgreatness
